Bacillus chlororaphis Guignard and Sauvageau 1894

Pseudomonas chlororaphis is a bacterium used as a soil inoculant in agriculture and horticulture. It can act as a biocontrol agent against certain fungal plant pathogens via production of phenazine-type antibiotics.[1] Based on 16S rRNA analysis, similar species have been placed in its group.[2]

The P. chlororaphis group[edit]

P. chlororaphis lends its name to a subgroup within the genus Pseudomonas. The other members of the P. chlororaphis subgroup are P. aurantiaca, P. aureofaciens, P. fragi, P. lundensis, and P. taetrolens.[2]
